Aenocyon dirus (= Canis dirus) is the new name for this gigantic canid!
Every bit as large as the wolves in a recent popular TV and book series, A. dirus, aka the Dire Wolf, averaged 150 lbs in weight. It has the strongest bite of any dog ever discovered. It lived in packs capable of taking down and eating horses, camels, bison, and even mammoths and mastodons at times. It lived until modern times. The La Brea tarpits have produced hundreds of skulls and jumbled skeletons.
